I remember when I was only around four, my aunt setting me on her lap and letting me hold the wheel as we were driving down a country road. That was over fifty years ago, before car seats or seat belts were a thing.

The Beatles did not invent that convention in song writing.

The use of the word "baby" to mean the adult member of the opposite sex whom the narrator is addressing.

I know. I was jokingly taking the song to be referring to an actual baby. When I was little though I did take the lyric literally and thought "babies are too young to drive cars."

I saw a picture of myself in a little car. It was pink. Considering my love of cars when I was a kid, it was strange that I didn't get my license until I was 48.

I like songs that say baby and this is the best of all times.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is Santa Baby. I don't think Santa is a literal baby in that song. :lol:

Eartha Kitt sang it about 1952-1953. It's cute. She's sort of a siren/seductive type woman.....

I called my 1st girlfriend Baby & I sometimes use that word in my head when thinking about my celeb crush. I NEVER thought/think of then as babies. They are both abit younger than me but the celeb is alot more independent, mature, responsible, independent, & smarter than me so I don't even really think of her as being younger than me.
